Allocations and Obligations

 

Q: Although I have completed the project approval queues in NEMIS, I am unable to obligate funds due to a lack of funding availability from the Disaster Recovery Fund. Is there a way to put the projects back in the pending workflow queue until funds are ready to be allocated and obligated?

Answer:
No. Projects cannot be put back in the pending workflow queue. The Hazard Mitigation Officer (HMO) must first void the approved project. Once funding is available, the Grantee then needs to create an amendment to the project and submit the amendment to FEMA for review and approval.

Q: The Allocation request is locked or stuck between queues and does not show up in next queue.

Answer:
The allocation request may be stuck in the Emergency Support (ES) module. If so, contact the FEMA Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) via email at FEMA-Enterprise-Service-Desk@dhs.gov, or by calling 1-888-457-3362.

Q: The Obligation Report for the project is showing the status of "Accepted in IFMIS" but in the Obligation section the project is showing the status of "Pending".

Answer:
Contact the FEMA Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) via email at FEMA-Enterprise-Service-Desk@dhs.gov, or by calling 1-888-457-3362.
